Saints’ night somehow gets worse, as plane breaks down stranding them in Seattle for night

SEATTLE – Just what the New Orleans Saints wanted – to be forced to extend their stay in Seattle.

After a 34-7 loss to Seattle, at least the Saints could go home and forget about it ... until their plane broke down. The Baton Rouge Advocate said that the Saints had to spend another night in Seattle as a result of the plane's issues.

Although the Saints probably have some serious concerns about the unexpected delay home, such as not packing enough underwear for another night on the road, what's most troubling is that they were already facing a short week of preparation before a huge NFC South showdown against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday night. Now their prep time for that game has been cut into even further.

The Saints would like to forget about this trip to Seattle as soon as possible. That's kind of tough to do when you're stuck in the city another night.
